The first Pop-Up Pub of 2017
After great media support for our Christmas Pop-up we’re ready to go forward with our fight in 2017!
Many people saw the BBC coverage of our campaign when Midlands Today visited our Christmas Pop-up Pub in December.
We’ve received messages of support from all over the country and have made contact with several other groups who are fighting the seizure of their pubs seized by greedy opportunists out to make a quick profit at the expense of the community.
2017 is a new year and we’re working hard to make Harding and Allely understand that Great Wolford is not a pushover and that we’re going to exert every legitimate pressure wherever and whenever we can to make their continued occupation of OUR village pub both uncomfortable, expensive. We’re going to fight them at every turn to make sure that they never realise their mendacious dreams of “turning it into a house and making a fortune”.
On Friday February 10th 2017 (this week) there will be a Pop-Up Pub at Little Wolford Village Hall.
Starting at 6.30pm with last orders at 10.30pm.
There will be a full bar with real ale and a good choice of beer, cider, wines and soft drinks. Bistro meals will be available: Chilli, Curry, Stews & French Bread £7.50 adult £5 children. Food purchase is not obligatory and entry is free – come and go as you like. Cash only please
The aim is to enjoy ourselves in a friendly village environment as though the F&H was open. Along the way we’d like to discuss tactics and to raise funds for the campaign.
Just to be clear, and in the light of the unpleasant scenes surrounding Jackie Harding’s attempts to attend a previous meeting, this event is a social event being run for supporters of the campaign to rescue the Fox and Hounds. As those solely responsible for our village being denied our pub the proprietors of the Fox and Hounds’ and their families are not welcome and will be refused admittance.
